  1. I agree with both of you...I just want everything to be easily compatible with everything haha
  2. It's not a perfect ultrabook by 2020 standards I guess...we all have different needs/preferences but I'd honestly want the ff before paying such a high (very high imo) premium on such: >AMD Renoir/Cezanne with USB 4 of course >Non-soldered memory >an extra M.2 SSD slot >14" 16:10 screen (even if it means a slightly larger footprint) >At least a 60 Wh battery >proven QC so that there will be less reports about them breaking just outside the warranty period among a few other things... I don't know, probably just dreaming haha
  3. These "leaked" SKU's on the current and upcoming Nvidia 30 series cards are rather exciting!


    What's the unnamed SKU though? 3070 Ti? 🤔


    1. Spotty


      Notice the blue line under it? Clearly it's the new Intel Xe graphics card

      I agree bro...Team Red and Team Green better watch out! 😂

  4. LG has just officially announced their latest phone which has a different form factor as compared to the typical "glass sandwich" design. It comes with a swiveling POLED screen which is designed to increase functionality. I definitely think this is a possible alternative to folding phones for those who want a secondary screen but don't want the fragile folding component. I honestly want to see how creative people will be able to use this device and it's very unique form factor. Sources: https://www.cnet.com/news/lg-wing-5g-lgs-swivel-phone
  5. Yeah...it was bought at around $31 billion back in 2016 so a relatively small growth after over 4 years.
  6. I wasn't referring to applications on the average consumer level. I'm talking about cloud computing to be used my national governments and corporations and the unfortunate possibility that everything (and I MEAN EVERYTHING from your personal info, routes your cars take in the city, to all the cameras and what they see, to all public and private records, you name it and there's a possibility it can be accessed by the internet then it's possible all the data about everyone and what they do and it's electronic record being stored in "hubs") being shared in hubs within countries connected by th
  7. You should've been the one to have posted the topic. You are much more knowledgeable than me or most people about things like these!
  8. Update (9/14/2020): ---------------------------------------------- SoftBank is set to sell the UK's Arm Holdings to US chip company Nvidia for more than 40 Billion US dollars and it will be a matter of a cash-and-stock takeover. This may be announced as soon as Monday and will make SoftBank will become the largest shareholder in the US chip company. The fear of the possibility of a large conglomerate corporation like Nvidia will have too much control in the industry (or any company in any industry) is one that I'm sure a lot of people will be concerned
  9. yes and no The future would seem that the ultimate goal is to have every bit of the habitable earth (I'm not a fan of this to be honest) be connected in some manner through wireless technology such as 5g or whatever generation as the case may be in the future at the bare minimum. Failsafes such as redundancy of local nodes/stations and backup power storage and generation will most likely be put in place to prevent any downtimes (so no, it most likely won't turn into a brick given that local stations would likely be put in place and would function more should central areas be disabled for
  10. That is correct The experiment/study they performed was only done on the skin "side" meaning that the neuro-engineering/neuromorphic technology requried for this to link with the CNS has yet to be developed. It might be be that we will see this tech in humanoid robots first but we'll see.
  11. How large is the Star Trek universe? I can only imagine there's a ton of content to watch or read but I'm not much of a comic/graphic novel reader if ever
  12. Alright...seems like there will be a lot of time spent watching all of Star Trek if I started
  13. I hope they don't but a lot of people want to have a hassle-free experience like have everything done for them...not a fan of it to be honest. I'm more concerned about who controls the cloud...you can only imagine what kind of power they would hold.
  14. Nope, not what I meant though but I'm not sure if you're being sarcastic but alright. I meant having all the computing and storage elements of everything in central "cloud" areas so there is a possibility that in the future the only thing we'll have in our home as personal computers will be screens and I/O connected to the cloud and all your data and computing needs will be handled from it. For phones, wearables and mobile devices, 5G will probably handle the wireless portion of this "cloud" future.
  15. Not sure if this has been posted before but might as well... Summary UCL engineers, together with two companies, Xtera and KDDI Research, achieved a data transmission rate of 178 terabits a second (178,000,000 megabits a second). They claim it would be possible to download the entire Netflix library in less than a second. This was achieved by transmitting data through a much wider range of colors of light, or wavelengths, than is typically used in optical fiber through new Geometric Shaping (GS) constellations. They are basically patterns of signal combinations that al
  16. I don't know, a lot of the non-tech people (I mean even those who just use it as daily drivers and not use all of its features) I talk to really know what model their phone is although not a majority do know the specs so I agree with you there. If I'm not mistaken though, the S20U actually gets a better battery life compared to the Note20U when all things are leveled out, will recheck that one though. For the 45W vs the 25W, the 45W charger actually charges faster (if it doesn't compared to the 25W, you might need to get a replacement) but it's more apparent in the initial majority of t
  17. Fully agree with you right there. It used to be a niche product but it has now appealed to a greater market. They don't have to remove everything that made it so great to be honest.
  18. I do agree that the sites may have been posting to join the bandwagon (I've been hearing this for years actually) but I posted it now given that their foldables are in "full-swing" so to speak (sort of rather) so I see the inevitability of it to be honest thus I posted this particular topic. For scenarios 2, 3 and 4; they're actually very similar with the main difference being how they name the phones (for marketing purposes) because I'm honestly not sure whether the S line or the Note line has more mindshare/market share or maybe they want to rebrand the phones entirely hence those we
  19. Those are some good habits to prolong the lifespan of smartphones (given that the screen is the main interaction interface), I actually think they should make a Techquickie video about this (habits such as yours) seeing as phones are getting way too expensive (flagships are becoming an investment rather than an impulse buy) and are dare I say a necessity in our current society for multiple reasons. (communication, work, etc.) I never understood why people really champion the point of having 1440p resolutions (and high-refresh rate with it) on screens of mobile devices like that; I'm sure ev
  20. Same question all of us ask ourselves at some point
  21. Can you imagine if robots then looked like those seen in Westworld?
  22. I agree with you there...the upcoming 5000 mobile series from AMD (Cezanne) will most likely be better than Tigerlake. We'll see.
  23. Honestly have never seen any Star Trek episode. Thanks! I feel people already after my head.
  24. Rather excited for Tigerlake to be compared to the 4000 series and upcoming 5000 series from AMD. Jarrod's Tech posted a video with a bit (just a bit) of an overview of the Asus Zenbook Flip after talking about how Intel claims Tigerlake performs better than the 4000 series from AMD.
